Our local Soil and Water Conservation District will be hosting a FREE 1-day soils conference in March.
Soil-Con will be held on March 20th at the Oakwood Resort in Syracuse, IN. Doors open at 8:00am.
These speakers will be coming in from across the country to speak to our local growers. David Montgomery is a geomorphologist who looks at the process shaping Earth’s surface and how they affect ecological systems—and human societies. In addition to his academic work, he and his wife, Anne Bikle have written a number of popular science books, three of which won the Washington State Book Award. Their books will be for sale at the event. Dr. Elaine Ingham has advanced our knowledge about the soil food web for over 4 decades. Widely recognized as the world’s foremost soil biologist, she’s passionate about empowering ordinary people to bring the soils in their community back to life. Dr. Elaine’s™ Soil Food Web Approach has been used to successfully restore the ecological functions of soils on six continents. Along with Dr. Christian Krupke, professor of entomology at Purdue University, has been named the Dean’s Fellow for Resilient Agriculture to provide research leadership aimed at making agriculture more productive and durable. Krupke will lead a multiyear initiative that brings together research faculty from different disciplines in the College of Agriculture.
